Aw, thank you, Rania! I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to do something like this. It was a lot of fun, and it gave me the chance to get to know some of my dance sisters in our troupe a bit better.
Awe thank you!!! I've decided on a teacher and hopefully shes as nice as I think she is,no doubt she is talented. My inspiration was this random woman at a Palestinian wedding, the way she moved and carried herself was so elegant to me. At the time she seemed like a Goddess, I was 8. Now I'm very much inspired by Russian Dancers like Yasmin, Wow does that woman have a body and elegance. Check her out on Youtube when you get a chance.
I was born in Pakistan, horrible I know LOL!!! My mom is Afghan and my fathers Persian, but for some odd reason I grew up watching hindi movies and speaking hindi. Now I live in Whiting Indiana. I don't hold professional status yet. I've been dancing all my life but never had the courage to ask my parents to support me, but now I'm an adult and I can finally make decisions. I enjoy dancing too much to do anything else. I'm forever a student to this art form. Heres a question for you!!!! Who is your inspiration?
I've been dancing for about 13 years and have a small troupe here in southwest Ohio. We actually have troupe rehearsals in a barn ) I'm sure I've been in workshops and have seen some performances by the dancers you mentioned. Do you know of Shakira in Columbus or Kira in Dayton?
I hope I'm sending a reply correctly. Yes I am into bollywood as well as belly dance. I'm super duper multicultured. Paki, Afghan, Indian, Persian and more often than not ...a hillbilly. LOL!! Where are you from?
